Recites Article 114.
"It should be ijoted 'hat this man
date not only recites article 119 of
. the treaty of Versailles, that 'Ger
many renounced in favor of the orin
cipal allied and associated powers,
all her rights over her oversea pos
sessions, including the groups of Is
iJnds in the Pacific ocean, lying
north oi the equator, but also re
cites that the principal allied and
associated powers agreed that in ac
cordance with article 22, part 1
(covenant of the league of nations)
t;l the said treaty, a mandate should
l:e conferred on his majesty, the em
peror ot Japan to administer the said
islands and have proposed that thn
mandate should be formulated as set
forth. While tfn's last quoted, re
cital, as has been pointed out- in
previous communication;! by this
ijovcriiinciit, is inaccurate in its
terms, inasmuch aslhe United States,
as one of the principal allied and
associated powers, had not so agreed
and proposed, the recital again rec
ognizes the necessity of the partici
pation of the United States to make
the proposed disposition effective.
"As, in the absence of any treaty
with the United States relating to
the matter, there was no decision
May 7. 1919, binding the United
States, it is deemed, to be unneces
sary again to eamintj thi brief min
utes of the meetingj&f the, supreme
council on that dsIt may, how
ever, be proper to sa$ that the, min
utes of this meeting, although obvi
ously without any finality, could not
properly be construed without due
regard to the other 'proceedings of
the supreme council and without
taking account of the reservations
which President Wilson had made in
the previous meetings of the supreme
council on April 21. April 30 and
May 1, 1919.
Attitude of ' Wilson. .
"The attitude of President Wilson
is sufficiently shown by the follow
ing statement he made to the' De
partment of State March 3, 19.il: .
" 'I beg to return the note-received
yesterday from the Japanese govern
ment, iv-hich I have read in relation
' to the' proposed mandate covering
the island of Yap.
" 'My first information of a con
tention that the so-called decision of
May 7, 1919, by the council of four,
assigned to Japan a mandate for Yap,
was conveyed to me by Mr. Norman
Davis in October. I then informed
him Thad never consented to the
assignment of Yap to Japan.'
" 'I had not previously given parti
cular attention to the wording of
the council's minutes of May 7, 1919,
which were only recently called to
my attention. I had on several oc
casions prior to the date mentioned,
made specific reservations regarding
Yap and had taken the position that
it should not be assigned, under man
date to anv one power, but should
be internationalized for cable pur
poses. 1 assumed this position would
be duly considered in connection
with the settlement' of the cable
ouestion and that it therefore was no
longer a matter of consideration in
connection with" the peace negotia
tions. I never abandoned or modi
fied this position in respect to Y ap
and. I did not agree way , y-
t any other time, that Yap should
be included in the ass.nmcnt of
mandates to Japan.'
"'s a matter of fact, all agree
ments arrived at regarding assign
ment of mandates were conditional,
on a subsequent agreement being
reached as to the specific terms ot
the mandates and further, on their
acceptance by each of the principal
allied and associated powers. 1 he
consent of the United States is es
sential, both as to assignments of
mandates and the terms and pro
visions of the mandates, after agree
ment as to their assignment or allo

pose of President WUson in relation

could not, have finality, this govern

as a cession of its rights. j
"It may be added, however, that
when Ahe matter was brought to
the attention of this government in

communications in October, this
government informed the govern
ment of Japan and other govern
ments .(by notes of November 9,
1920) that it was the. understanding
of this government that Yap was
not included in the action of May
7. 1919. Its position was subse
quently stated at length.' '
."It is a cause 'of regret to this
government, that despite this protest,

has been useil to cede or nurender

not recognize the allocation of the

Britain May Aid America
To Settle Pacific Problem
By JOHN STEELE.
- Chlcaga Tribune Cablft, Copyright.
London, April 6. From an
authoritative source it is stated that
Great Britain may assist America
in the settlement of the Pacific prob
lems and especially those concern
ing the control of the Island of Yap.
According to the informant, Prims
Minister Lloyd George is consider
ing mediation between Japan and
America in the interests of harmony
and whether it would not be wise to
council Japan to be sensible, in the
face of America's claims in the
The difficulty to be overcome is,
the fact that Yap was awarded to
Japan by the treaty of Versailles,
with at least passive consent by
former President Wilson, and in the
eyes of the European powers Japan
has a legal right to stand on the let
ter of the bond.
At the same time British states
men now recognize that President
Wilson was repudiated by America
in the last election and that he never
had the power to bind her to any
Because of this, Great Britain is
considering "advising" Japan not to
stand on the letter of the law? but
to consent to reopen the whole mat
ter in the interest of world peace
and justice.- r 1
Such 'advice to Japan from Great
Britain would be equivalent to a
command and if the policy to be
suggested was adopted, Japan would
climb down from her stand.

Now on Election
, (Continued From !' Onr. '
the election offers considerable ma
terial for discussion. It is believed
to be in the cards that the Com
mittee of 5,000 and Commissioner
Ure will make their peace and that
Ure may be added to 'the six can
didates nominated by this organiza
tion. With such a line-up of seven can
didates, it has been proposed that
a new organization should be
formed for the election campaign:
A similar situation occurred three
years ago. The Committee of 5.000
at that time nominated Ed P. Smith,
J. Dean Ringer, R. N. Tow!, W. G.
Ure and Henry F. Wulf, and after
the primary those five nominees be
came identified with the "Allied Can
didates," with H. B. Zimman as the
sixth candidate and with W. F. Bax
ter as the general manager of the
Zimman Not Ready.
The ticket headed by Dahlman
put over five candidates on Tuesday
Dahlman, Dunn, Hummel, Hop
kins and Koutsky. It is probable
that Commissioner Zimman will be
taken on this Dahlman ticket for ths
election, athough Mr. Zimman is not
ready to commit, himself on ' thi?
pliase of the situation.
This would leave Commissioner
Butler without organized identifica
tion. He made the race alone three
years ago and led the. field.
Before this primary he was ap
proached by promoters of the Dahl
man ticket, but declined to be openly
affiliated with that group for the pri
mary. Some orosrnosticators be
lieve stranger things hav happened
than that of seeing Zimman ami

nolds, Short and Wulf trailed Noyes,
Madden and Wharton, who appear
to be just outside of the successful
14. Noyes and Wharton were the
defeated Dahlman ticket candidates.
Walter S. Jardine and A. C.
Kugel, defeated aspirants three years
ago, did not come within sight of
enough votes for nominations.
Julius S. Cooley showed . up
stronger than he did three years ago.
At this primary he received. 791 votes,
about three times his vote at the last
city primary. ,,
Tell Another Story.
On the fact of the unofficial re
turns it appears that Dahlman made
overwhelming gains, but an analysis
of the primary figures of this week
and three years ago, shows that the
actual percentage of gains ten an
other story. The following gains in
per cent are reflected in the primary
figures of luesday: ,

It is further noted that Dahlman,
who ran first three years ago at the
primary election, trailed in 10th
place at the election, running nearly
.1,000 behind Ed P. Smith, by whom
he was defeated at that time. ...

Commission members agreed that
the crux of the problem centered in
the phrase "veteran rehabilitation."
While it was a single problem, they
said, it naturally was divided into
three needs which must be fulfilled
for the ex-soldiers by the govern
ment. They were those of a physi
cal nature; those of finance and
those dealing with industrial phases.
Heretofore these problems have
been delegated to three organiza
tions, the public health service for
medical treatment, the bureau of war

board, of vocational education for in
These organizations will be
grouped, according to the decision,
under a central authority eliminating
duplication and conflict.
The commission's findings, it was
said, . will show serious- conditions
with reference to shortage of hospital
facilities, especially as affecting
tubercular and mental cases. This
condition will be cited to illustrate
the need for new hospitals, for
which an appropriation probably
will be asked.
New legislation will also be asked
by the commission to accomplish
consolidation of the bureaus and
centralizatioifof the field service.

those now in use, but differing only
in that they are on a co-operative
basis, are provided in the commit
tte's plan, also for use at option.
Some members of the committee
of 17 viewed the demand for com
pulsory pooling as supported large
ly by radicals. Others at the close
of the meeting, expressed themselves
in: favor of the plan.
"We determined to leave the de
cision of pooling to the members,"
Clifford Throne, a member of the
committee and its attorney, said.
"This will leave pooling to the acid
test and if it is the best meethod of
marketing grain it will survive."
To tr, Mr. Moser of Texas re
plied optional pooling would come
as a bombshell to Texas. There, he
said, they were pooling on a 100
per cent busjiel basis.
"To some, of us, the pooling idea
is the heart of co-operation," Mr.
Sapiro declared in seconding Mr.
Moser's compulsory pooling amend
ment "It is the keypoint of-rfhe
"If you keep this clause for op
tional pooling in the contract, there
will be no pooling. At least one-
"third of the wheat offered is needed
in a great national pool. If you
want to do the great thing, give
pooling a chance. This contract
gives it none. The inertia of men
will fight against it."
Must Be Pushed.
"If pooling is not pushed it will not
succeed," Mr. Hewitt declared. "Give
this third; until you have done that
you cannot apply the acid test to
pooling. It is the fundamental thing
in the movement."
Grain growers from 23 states were
represented at the conference, which
was called by the committee of
17 after more than six months'
work on a national marketing plan.
Delegates numbering 105 are in at
tendance. If the movement is backed by the
farmers, Mr. Thome, said, it would
develop into the largest single ex
ample of co-operating marketing in
the world, handling annually sev
